Bobcat has announced that it plans to suspend operations at its Bismarck and Gwinner, North Dakota, factories for selected days in June and July.
The company will close the Gwinner plant June 10-12, June 24-26 and June 29. Bismarck’s operations will be on hold June 10 and July 6-10. Bobcat cites the global economic recession as the reason.
The manufacturer explains that summer months are the slow season, forcing them to cut back hours. The closing July 6-10, however, was scheduled last year to enable the Bismarck factory to move.
Last month, Bobcat also announced it will cut almost 250 jobs at the same factories.
